Two Libertarians are certain to be elected to local partisan office in Louisiana in November, because they filed in races for which the number of candidates is equal to the number of seats to be filled. Randall Hayes filed for Alderman in Atlanta, and Michael Riffe filed for the same office in Sikes. Each village is in Winn Parish and each elects three. In each case, only three individuals filed, so the election is canceled and the candidates who filed are deemed nominated.
If there had been an election, party labels would have been on the ballot. As far as is known, these two Libertarians will be the first minor party members elected to public office in Louisiana since 1968, when the American Party presidential elector candidates won the election and voted for George Wallace in the electoral college. Thanks to Randall Hayes for this news.
